The Development Control Section of the Development Group is primarily responsible for the processing of all kinds of planning applications. Most decisions on applications are taken by officers under the delegated power arrangements. Members on the Development Control Committee normally decide the most contentious or major proposals.
The Section also deals with planning appeals, enforcement matters relating to breaches of planning control and tree preservation orders.
The Authority not only seeks to determine application in a timely manner but to make quality planning decisions in an open manner. In October 2005 public speaking was introduced at meetings of the Planning and Development Committee and details of applications are now available on the web (click here for details).
If you wish to pay your planning application fee by credit or debit card, please contact the Development Control Section on 01656 643675 or you may send a cheque to the address below made payable to 'Bridgend County Borough Council'.
